Has anyone else heard of this?? The officially declared International Year of Natural Fibres? It's freakin excellent.
Upon discovery of this site, I immediately emailed my friend who works for the UN. Sadly, he doesn't work in this division. He's in the puny Development branch, saving the world by promoting peace and prosperity... or some such. However he agrees with me that sheep can probably save the world. He also interprets this initiative as further proof of the relevancy of the United Nations. Yay for sustainable agriculture.
What I want to know is: How can I join the jute study group? For now, I'm just subscribing to the email list.
